Re: collecting in FL
A note on possible recent changes to the Florida collecting laws. A few
months back, I received my second warning about using a seign in enclosed
water in Florida. The first time, I supposed that my seign was too big (25ft
bag seign). This time, I was using a 6ft. seign. Being threatened of
seizure of my property, I left the area. I had a scientific collecting
permit for the state of Florida, but much to my grief it was two-weeks
Escaping another run-in with those friendly Florida DNR types, I made safe
passage to Alabama (where games wardens are figments of myth and legend).
I would really like to hear, prefereably from a supervisor in the DNR, the
rules on using a seign in the Sunshine State.
